for the united states. hundreds of libyans amassed outside the consulate, airing signs denouncing yesterday's violent destruction which led to the death of u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and three others. in addition libyan authorities arrested four men suspected of instigating the protests. president obama called both egyptian president morsi and magariaf. the two calls had decidedly different tones. president obama expressed appreciation to libyan president magariaf for the cooperation received from the libyan government and people in responding to the attack. though questions still remain about the role libyan terrorists played in escalating the attacks. with respect to egypt the president had made an interesting comment in an interview earlier yesterday with telemundo. >> would you consider the current egyptian regime an ally of the united states? >> obama: i don't think that we would consider them an ally but we don't consider them an enemy. >> eliot: against this backdrop, president obama's phone call with egyptia
of days ago, president obama said egypt was not exactly the united states' ally, but it wasn't its enemy either. did those words have anything to do with this? >> reporter: i think there is a certain amount of alarm among the leadership of the muslim brotherhood. those i've spoken with did seem to get the message, that the united states was unhappy with the response or the reaction of mohammed morsi, the egyptian president, to the breaching of the american embassy. they felt that maybe it's time to start sending out a more reassuring messages to the united states. but what's significant is that on the one hand the message is come i coming out in english to a nonarabic audience, seemed to be pointing in the direction of reconciliation. i was at a demonstration this morning at a mosque not in the tahrir square area where it was organized by the muslim brotherhood. and the chants were not reassuring. one of the chants was "obama there are a million osamas." referring, of course, to osama bin laden, be chanting that united states is the enemy of god. it appears that the muslim brotherhood is
different images here, offering comfort to the families, saying that the united states despite the images of violence will remain engaged around the world, that justice will be done. but also in the case of each of these men, making the point that they essentially fell on a battlefield, in service of the country, and in service of their friends. and, of course, this is what the fallen do, don't they? you learn so many times through the years that when men and women fight in battle, they fight for each other. and these men were fighting for libya, they were fighting for the people of libya, and the president, i think, made it very clear in his message, he wanted to sound that theme, that they served for a reason for this country and for countries around the world, that this is the symbol of u.s. diplomacy. >> barbara, let's listen to that now. >> four americans, four patriots, they loved this country and they chose to serve it and served it well. they had a mission, and they believed in it. they knew the danger, and they accepted it. they didn't simply embrace the american ideal, they live
. the following month the united states announced that u.s. drone strike had killed a libyan who was the second ranking guy in al qaeda central. a guy who went by the moniker al libi which means the libyan. the same group in benghazi responded immediately within 24 hours. they launched another attack that they filmed al qaeda-style, and they ultimately claimed credit for it. this time their target was the u.s. consulate in benghazi, the same u.s. consulate where christopher stevens was killed two nights ago. they hit the consulate with an ied, turned the attack into an al qaeda-style video type of propaganda. the same group hit a british envoy in benghazi with a car bomb. it had the hallmarks of al qaeda inspiration or al qaeda training. they filmed the incident, dropped leaflets. they tried to take as much credit as possible. then on the morning of september 11th, this week, al qaeda central put out a video calling for attacks to avenge that same killing of al libi the group in benghazi had avenged before when it was first announced he was killed. by that night, the night of september 11th thi

internet movie they find offensive that was produced in the united states. the government repeated they have no affiliation with the movie. president obama had a blunt late night phone call with egypt's new president, morsi. president obama warning it could be jeopardizes if they don't take a stand against american attacks. too little too late. morsi asked for $5 billion in loans from the inf telling egyptians it is their duty to protect our guests. in yemens a mob scene. they evacuated to a safe location and no embassy staff was injured. there was still plenty of damage as you can see in the pictures. hundreds of protesters tore through the security wall and smashed bullet-proof windows and torching cars. yemen's president immediately apologized to president obama for the attacks. >>> new developments on the attack in benghazi. we'll get the latest on that. first, we go to cairo. jim is standing by. what is the latest there? >> reporter: hi, willie. it's getting quite noisy here now. several hundred protesters who were setting up camp overnight on tahrir square tried to make anoth
the mourners as the bodies of the u.s. ambassador and others killed in libya return to the united states. and mitt romney ramps up his criticism of the president again as the latest polls show him falling behind in several crucial states. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> but we begin with these live pictures. look at this. this is tahrir square in cairo. these are live pictures coming in not far from the united states embassy. once again, the protests escalating even as we speak. earlier in the day it had been relatively -- keyword, relatively, quiet. now seems to be escalating for some reason. our own ben wedeman is on the ground for us. we're going to be going to him shortly. at the same time as these scenes are unfolding, there also have been frightening scenes of violence and hatred directed at the united states and others around the region. it's spreading. and u.s. officials are very worried. sources tell me they're especially concerned about today's penetration of the united states embassy in tunisia and the reports that the american school was actually burned.
against the united states without some consequencesment now that authority has been removed. the imams and other speakers at friday prayers are free to say almost whatever they want. and that makes the situation far more dangerous. >> protests and deaths in the middle east. and political implications in america when we continue. >> funding for charlie rose was provided by the following: . >> rose: additional funding provided by these funders captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. in this presidential election of 2012 foreign policy was not considered to be an important factor. that's all changed now because on monday night when american diplomatic interests came under attack in egypt and libya, tragically ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in benghazi, governor romney has attempted to make some political attacks out of the situation. and here is what he said. >> i think it's a-- a -- -- a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> rose: president obama responded in kind in
of pressure when it comes to this. not only from the united states, but also from its own people. now, whether these people that are detained are really involved in the attack or have links to this extremist group is something that we'll have to see and see what kind of reaction we see from the extremists too. >> do we have any idea if they're related or affirmative actionated with al qaeda? there's a lot of talk about that yesterday, the possibility that that was the organization. >> not much has been revealed by the government by this group, but what we do know, suzanne, is this is not an isolated incident. over the past few months we have seen an uptick in similar attacks targeting western interests. the u.s. consulate itself was targeted in an attack back in june when a bomb detonated outside the embassy. those attacks taken place in benghazi was targeted by a extremist group, it was called the brigades. this is a true al qaeda group. we also do know that there are groups with links direct links to al qaeda that operate in the eastern part of the country. >> what is the security situation
. and that ideology is one of jihad against the united states. they believe that they are engaged on a war which is a war against islam. and the duty of every muslim when islam is under attack to rise up and defend it. so if you can make an argument to the people as they effectively can with this film that islam is under attack it's very easy to capture that popular anger and resentment and to hide behind that, to further an agenda that is essentially al qaeda's agenda that is rarely what it comes back to. it doesn't mat ferr this was ordered by al qaeda or not it may have been investigators are looking at that. but the fact is that the ideology and intent is the same. it's been the same ever since osama bin laden made his first fat what against the united states, a global ideology and intent on the destruction of the united states and the west. >> that is absolutely true. and what adds a sort of extra dimension to the current state of affairs is that now there are people in this country who have questionable agendas of their own. who are giving provocation just as there are people willing to ta
the swiss embassy in tehran, shouting death to the united states. the swiss embassy handles u.s. interests in iran, and is being heavily guarded right now by police. >> as for the president, president obama vowing all necessary steps. security being beefed up to protect u.s. citizens all around the world. >> and, and a major development in libya. the first arrests in connection with the attack that killed two well-respected american diplomats and two former navy s.e.a.l.s. >> want to begin our worldwide coverage this morning out of cairo with ian lee. ian talk to me a little bit about this world via twitter from the muslim brotherhood that they are announcing the protests will only be held in tahrir square. why is that? >> well, brook, what the muslim brotherhood is saying, is that by canceling the protests around egypt, they hope to curb any violence that happens from those protests. but they said they're holding a symbolic protest in tahrir square. they also added that because it's symbolic, means there's not going to be a lot of people, a low turnout. you know, they can't have one prote
states has now asked a private entity in the united states to review a film that was put on youtube. so government is supposed to protect free. see instead, it's asking them to look at a video. what is next? if we give them the excuse that the video, we understand why you rioted and killed our ambassador and three others, because of a video, then what happens when something really serious happens? >> kimberly: it sounds like a justification, which is the problem to be honest with you. >> bob: there is no connection between the video and the terrorists. >> dana: that is what they're saying. >> bob: it's doing a somber ceremony. i don't know where you get the twitter -- did he go beand they casket? >> dana: no, the campaign did. >> greg: bob is saying these are separate incidents and the terrorist attack is not about the movie. they conflateed it. not us. they conflated it. i want to know where are all the freedom of speech celebrity filmmakers who were out there and defended the crucifixion in the glass of urine? do we remember that? somehow they're silent about this. >> kimberly: now we
, for responding to this video with violence. >> woodruff: clinton also sought again to distance the united states' government from the film and its maker. the associated press reported that he's been identified as a coptic christian living in california with a checkered legal past. actors in the film said that they were duped, that the blasphemous and offensive dialogue was later dubbed in. and not just muslims, but coptic christians in cairo denounced the film and its apparent intent. >> ( translated ): if it is proven that there is a copt that participated in the making of this movie, the church 100% refuses him. >> woodruff: there were efforts to remove the video from view. the government of afghanistan tried to block youtube access. and in egypt and libya, youtube restricted users from playing the clip. meanwhile, american naval and military assets in the mediterranean, including warships and drone aircraft, refocused on libya, a country they helped liberate last year as part of a u.n.-sanctioned, nato operation. >> woodruff: nancy yousseff of mcclathy newspapers. she has been reporting on th
there needs to be some serious conversations within the united states and egypt. >> bill: there has been serious conversations for the last year. >> to leap to a conclusion that we should punish someone, i'm not sure that the evidence supports that at this point. the last thing we need is to basically make matters worse. what we need to do is figure out exactly what morsi knew, when did he know it examine insist that they protect our embassy as they -- >> bill: even if -- believe me when i tell you, it's going to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that these attacks in cairo and libya were coordinated on 9-11 as a direct act of war against the united states. so when you get that, when you get that, and you will, all right, then you say what? you must prepare for something. what are you prepared to do if indeed that is proven? >> if you let me talk, i'll tell you. >> bill: all right. >> you're mixing up libya and egypt. >> bill: no, i'm not. >> they're two different countries. >> bill: let's just stay on egypt. >> the libyan government apologized to, the libyan people apologized. so you
know the president of the united states talked to the president of egypt and demanded that kind of treatment from what was a long-time u.s. ally. now it seems to be somewhere in the middle d this is clearly un-american crowd, anti-american crowd, chanting with our blood, our soul, we avenge our prophet. bill? bill: who are the people in the streets? the usual suspects in cairo but what do we know about who the rioters are? >> reporter: you have pretty two defending groups. you have people in the street, who are young angry youths trying to break down the police barricades there. chanting slogans death to america. that kind of thing. if you zoom out a little bit and go 200 yards to your left, we will pan over and go to tahrir square. that is where the muslim brotherhood is holding a huge protest. that's where they tore up a u.s. flag earlier today during friday prayers. and paraded around with a islamist flag. the same islamist flag they put up on tuesday on 9/11. they're also carrying a usama bin laden poster about four feet tall around. that goes with graffiti reportedly spraye
. these are terrorists. >> they are. these are active war as far as i'm concerned in the united states. we have to closely examine why this is allowed to happen. what about the security and safety for those serving oversea, especially the u.s. ambassador in a situation they were not detected. that is not a secure environment. there is information about it, and the door is locked, where is bulletproof -- where is the stuff to protect him. if they're going to serve -- would you accept a position as ambassador for the obama administration -- >> greg: i would only be an ambassador to hawaii. believe me. i'm not brave. you are having demonstrations, because they're covered. it goes back to the saying if a tree falls in the woods and nobody is there, does it fall or whatever. >> eric: does it make a sound? >> greg: i don't care about the anti-american sentiment. i care about the americans being safe. they can have their protests until the day that die. i don't care. we have shouldn't care how they feel about us. what we should concentrate on is protecting the people abroad or getting them the hell ou
'll all be ruined. >> kimberly: they don't fear or res special us. the administration of the united states has been weakened. we no longer have the strong hold we had under bush and cheney. that's a fact. not respected by the people. now obama can -- >> bob: listen -- [over talk ] >> greg: again, i don't like using the phrase hurt feelings, but i'm with dana on this. she has a job to do, and she has bigger concerns than we do. >> eric: the problem is there are hundreds of thousands of radicals out there that hear the message gand you know what? we're not going to get punched back. if that's all they got. >> eric: we got to go. >> kimberly: i don't think the message kept people safe and help them in the future. i don't. >> eric: yesterday, president obama skipped the intel briefing and american embassies were being attacked. what was so important to the commander? >> it's so good to see all of you. i love you back. i do. >> eric: that's right. campaign stop in vegas, because for obama what happens in egypt stays in vegas. kimberly with the president just a minute.

to fund programs all over the united states where we wouldn't only improve -- we wouldn't only build things that we need, but improve them. the american society of civil engineers has addressed this issue, mr. speaker. what they have said, 2.3 trillion of infrastructure maintenance needs to be done. i come from the city of minneapolis and in my city, we had a bridge fall into the mississippi river. maintenance in this country is critical. we have bridges that are old and deteriorating all over this country. we have bridges that are in need of repair, roads as well, and we also have other projects that need to be taken care of, in terms of our grid and wastewater treatment, in terms of all types of important infrastructure. but we have not invested. we are relying on things that our grandparents gave us. we are relying on eisenhower-era infrastructure, because we haven't in our age focused on the needs of the american people to have infrastructure bill. just to talk a little bit more about the american jobs act, it would also extend cutting payroll taxes in half for 98% of businesses.
from the united states. what's your red line with iran? >> my red line is iran may not have a nuclear weapon. iran is a nuclear nation, is unacceptable to the united states of america. >> president obama said exactly the same thing. he said it's unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapon. your red line is the same as his. >> i laid out what i would do to keep iran from reaching that red line. i said that crippling sanctions needed to be put in place immediately. that combined with standing up with iranian dissidents. the president was silent when dissidents took to the streets of tehran, the president was silent. in addition, i think ahmadinejad should have been indicted for incitation to genocide. >> but your red line going forward is the same? >> yes, and recognize that when one says that it's unacceptable to the united states of america, that that means what it says. >> you mentioned president obama's likability. we had a poll question this week, asking who would you rather have dinner with. right now, president obama is beating you by about 19 points on that. try and convince
in bengazi is they were just using a rented house and it wasn't properly hardened. united states under mohamed morsi is not going to have the kind of cozy relationship it had with mubarak. he was a dictator getting money from the united states and probably he was being bribed by other forces in the region, as well. washington could pick up a phone and say do this and he would say yes, sir. mohamed morsi has a political base. he represents the oldest muslim religious institution in the country, political institution and he has a base to satisfactory, so he's not going to be taking any orders. i think that was what president obama was signaling is that we've got a new situation in egypt where we don't have a puppet. the united states had a puppet in egypt doesn't have one now. we've got somebody who might not do what we want them to do under certain circumstances and we're going to have to negotiate with them. >> professor cole is the long term answer here, we've got to ride these wavy waters. it's not going to be as easy as the past as telling the dictator who was our ally do this. are
smoke coming out of the u.s. embassy. they have replaced the united state flag. there are also reports they have taken over an american school there as well. fox is trying to confirm all of this. it is similar to what we are seeing and other countries, in particular lebanon. at least one person was killed in the protest. many more were wounded. this comes as pope benedict xvi arrived in lebanon. protesters they were seen ripping up his picture ahead of his visit to lebanon. here in afghanistan, we feared there would be widespread violence. so far, those have not materialized. it has been very peaceful here in kabul. there are real concerns that the rights will spread to afghanistan or pakistan in the coming days. melissa: connor, thank you for that report. lori: these are trying times, that is for sure. let's see how the markets are reacting. nicole petallides is on the floor of the new york stock exchange. nicole: we are keeping a close eye on some of the office product retailers. there is news. the first set of news is stapled it now has private equity firms interested in taking it p
